Abbeymead Primary School


Welcome to Reception! 

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn - Benjamin Franklin"


Reception at Abbeymead is an exciting, purposeful and stimulating environment in which to learn and we hope that your child has a truly positive start to their school career with us. The above quote encompasses everything that we hope to provide for your child during their first year at school. We endeavour to provide a curriculum that is based on real-life experiences, involves the children and most importantly, is planned through careful assessment of their own needs and interests. We hope that your child has a lovely time learning at Abbeymead each and every day and we promise to always take good care of them.

We are a friendly team and have an open door policy. If you ever need to speak to a member of the team, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will help you in any way we can.
